Microsoft Surface Book is simply amazing: Specs, features analysis

Microsoft Surface Book is being praised like it was the best thing to have happened to the tech world. There is no denying the fact that it is a great product and looks and performs better than the best.

Nonetheless what is amazing is the fact that demand for this little beast hasn’t come down despite hosts of issues that have cropped up since its launch in October last year.

There is no denying the fact that ever since its launch in the market the whole world is going gaga about it and showering praise on the Redmond based tech giant for coming out with such an impressive product. TechRadar in a review says, “Now, Microsoft introduces the Surface Book as the “ultimate laptop.” Like the Surface tablets before it, this laptop takes a unique spin on the notebook format that’s been around for over 40 years. Between the 3:2 aspect ratio, 13.5-inch screen and its practically-trademarked “dynamic fulcrum” hinge, there isn’t any machine on the planet like the Surface Book – and then, with the touch of a button and a gentle tug, it becomes a tablet…It all sounds like an amazing idea on paper, and with the added “holy shit, Microsoft made a laptop” factor, the Surface Book sounds like a thoroughly amazing device”.

microsoft surface-bookDespite the fact that this beautiful and shining tablet is very costly –the Surface Book starts at $1499 for its entry level model housing an Intel Core i5 processor and 128GB, and goes up to $2,699 for a model with 512GB and a Core i7 processor –no one is complaining.

The laptop comes with exceptional specifications and features. According to Microsoft, Surface Book has a standalone Nvidia graphics processor installed in its keyboard, which means it can support professional-level apps like AutoCAD and Adobe Photoshop. Transforming the Surface Book from a laptop into a tablet is easy. It is just a click away. A button on the right hand side, when pressed, lets you unclip the tablet from its keyboard. Both the keyboard and trackpad attached to the Surface Book are fantastic.

It must be added here that the Surface Book is a great hybrid too and you will never have to think of another product. It display can be detached completely from the base with the press of a button (even the tech behind this mechanism has a fancy name: one-button Muscle Wire detach mechanism), why would you want to use it folded backwards? For the simple reason that the keyboard base can include a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GPU with 1GB of GDDR5 VRAM. In other words, if you need better graphics performance, you’re better off using the Surface Book docked. Else, in tablet mode, it falls back to the Intel HD 520 graphics.
